    Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming is bringing home audiences back to Truth University to check in on a new class.
    We’ll admit it: Every now and then we miss our college days. The people were awesome and the parties were on-point. But then we remember all those term papers and our tiny bank accounts and that changes real quick!
    Thankfully, Rob Hardy and the good people at Rain Forest Films have provided an antidote to that nostalgia with Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming, which hits stores today!
    For the sequel to Stomp the Yard, Rob took on a new role as the film’s director. He was an executive producer on the original movie, but he was eager to take even more control this time around. For Rob, it wasn’t about just rehashing Stomp the Yard; he wanted to do something fresh.
    "It was great because I got a chance to come in and kind of revisit something we had done before," Rob said. "But I got a chance to make it it’s own thing."
    One of the first new elements he wanted to add was getting sorority sisters in step for Stomp the Yard 2. It’s an element many fans said the original movie lacked.
    "We said that we definitely wanted to make sure that we were able to focus on that," Rob explained, adding that it also played into the main character’s love triangle. "Around that we got to create two different sororities: One for his girlfriend and one for his ex-girlfriend."
    But with a new cast also comes a changing of the guard for Theta Nu Theta, headed up by Pooch Hall of "The Game."
    Pooch became very invested in his role as Dane, the alpha male of TNT. Although "The Game" star never went greek in college, he still found a personal way to connect with what Dane stood for as a leader. As big brother, sometimes you love him, sometimes you hate him, but you always know he’s got your best interest at heart. 
    "I have those qualities naturally where I look at these guys in a sense where they look up to me, " Pooch said. "I wasn’t afraid because I know that everything that I’m about and everything that I stand for comes from a good place."
    He continued, "I never wanted anyone to say I didn’t give it my all. …I took those qualities into the character of Dane and said, ‘Hey, this is a reflection of who I am as a person.’"
    See how he leads his little brothers when you pick up your copy of Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming.
